  Kapitol Promotions Ltd has stated it will issue a further in depth statement.

Kapitol Promotions Ltd., which presents the National Brass Band Championships of Great Britain, has issued a preliminary response to the content of a statement issued by Brass Bands England (BBE) at 11.59pm on 14th March, halfway through the North of England and West of England Regional Championships.

Statement

Managing Director, Philip Morris told 4BR: "The statement contained damaging content directed at the North and West of England Regional committees, Kapitol Promotions and its directors.

Obviously and having sought advice, we cannot let such damaging content rest without response, but the current distressing and challenging Coronavirus pandemic that we are all dealing with means that now is certainly not the right time to make that response."
